I switched my PCP to Dr. Calef due to geographical and access convenience. I've seen him 2x, not overly thrilled. I discussed a very specific concern at my initial visit & he booked ct scan. 2 weeks after the ct scan, I went to him again for a virus I caught. He didn't give me any instructions to help my recovery. Not even "take aspirin for fever). I mentioned ct scan & how I hadn't received results. He remarked that he knew I called & didn't know why the call wasn't returned. I hadn't called.
